Kingston Hyper X – 8GB Kit (2x4GB) – DDR3 2800MHz CL12 DIMM
Here we see the Hyper X modules up close. The style of the tooth designed heat spreaders keeps Kingston’s trend of the Hyper X branding rolling along. The look is a bit passive, but the Kingston modules have a very clean line design and can be recognized anywhere. In this edition, they use Kingston’s fairly traditional blue color with the 2800MHz Hyper X. The modules would look very good on any board but might be best with motherboards that have blue aesthetics as we will soon see.
Next, we see a reverse view of the Hyper X with the manufacturer’s label.
Here is one module. Kingston continues to use a traditional colored PCB with these modules. Occasionally lately we have seen some use a black PCB. It’s really a minor aesthetic difference, because once they are installed, you will not see the PCB anyhow.
And the close-up shows the quality look that Kingston is known for.
Lastly, here is Kingston’s manufacturer label with the model number and miscellaneous information. This label must stay affixed for any warranty issues.
Let’s install some hardware and see how the Hyper X modules look.
